Why every year feels like the worst year ever, Knowing History and Knowing Who We Are, The Future of Mega-cities, The Hidden Risks of Cooking Your Food are some of the articles that make up this week’s list. Happy Reading!

Why every year—but especially 2020—feels like the worst ever – This article explores some of the biases that make many of us, especially in the Western World, tend to think of the present much more harshly. One of the ways in which we can address this bias creeping in? Step back from Social Media.

Knowing History and Knowing Who We Are – I have been interested in History for a few years now. This article explores lucidly, and at length, on why learning history is important. It also talks about how we could make learning history more interesting.

‘History of India’ series – On the topic of history is this fascinating series of articles that throw more light on lesser known times and facts of India’s long history. Worth exploring at length.

Here’s what New York City might look like after the pandemic – Yes, this article is about New York City, but it could just as easily be applied to any mega / global city across the world. It will be fascinating to see how this might play out over the next few months / years.

The hidden risks of cooking your food – It was over two years ago that I attended a course on healthy eating. One of the main points discussed was the harmful effects of processed food. Cooking is also a form of processing and there is a school of thought that believes it can cause harm. I still eat cooked food, but have become more conscious of the potential harmful effects of cooking and how these could be minimised, if not totally avoided.
